Cancer August 2019 Horoscope
Improving your communication skills and networking with others in your field provide increased opportunities to strengthen your position or advance your career. Trust your creative instincts.
Higher levels of stress undermine your vitality from the 1st—14th, but after that time recreational activities can help to take the edge off the tension you're feeling. Avoid high-risk situations.
Friction at home or within your family can dampen your spirits, especially if you're arguing over financial matters.
Denial complicates matters, so make an attempt to acknowledge the facts and address them with clarity. Partnerships can be frustrating, too, particularly if one of you is not living up to your end of the bargain.
Your love life takes a positive turn after the 13th, when you may feel more confident about taking risks or making the first move.
Take a good look at your finances during the Moon on the 3rd, when you can clearly evaluate your situation. Following through on correspondence, attending meetings or conferences, or making presentations helps solidify your professional standing, and during Mercury's retrograde from the 17th—31st you can review the details to be sure everything is as it should be.
Watch for loopholes and traps in joint ventures during the Moon on the 18th.
Take the high road, since you can be tempted by others to become involved in circumstances that do not agree with your own values. You'll come out ahead in the end.
